Scout Comics announced tech-savvy mothers take the Internet hostage to build a better world in Mom Breaks the Internet by Jay Sandlin and Patrick Mulholland.
Here is the description of the series:
Barbie Reed is a brilliant computer programmer, wife, and mother. Her fifteen-year-old daughter, Penny Alonzo-Reed, is an activist organizing free speech protests. The same day Barbie’s company lays her off, Penny is arrested and inappropriately touched by a policeman at a demonstration in front of the Capitol. With Penny facing assault charges, Barbie assembles her fellow moms to create real change by putting the Internet in a permanent time-out by reprogramming games to be educational, disabling trolls, and blocking bullies from spreading hate. Acting under the online persona of MOM, she and the others break the Internet! If President Waldgrave and his cronies want it back in time for the election, they’ll have to complete her list of honey-dos to create a better world. While MOM wants to keep people safe, she must avoid anti-hacker Agent Ramirez, who is tasked with bringing the tech-terrorist to justice. Can MOM restore sanity amidst all of the hatred and fear? Are her actions truly justice or is she endangering herself and her family for Internet vigilantism? And if Barbie gets caught… what happens to MOM and all the good that she’s done?
“This book means a lot as my first creator-owned series and I’m proud to have a name like Scout behind it. Taking the Internet hostage is something many parents have fantasized about, and now we get a taste of what that might look like.” — Jay Sandlin
